re: Melanie Wong
I went to the NESO one; unfortunately not that many vendors are there, only 3 Indonesians vendor shows up. The regulars are somehow taking a break. In the past, there were like 8 Indonesian food vendors + Dutch. It's probably due to the same event going on in SF.
My regular favorite, Nasi Padang by Yetty, didn't show up. Hopefully next one will be better, they seems to do this every season / 3 months.
